After over 20 years I am revisiting flax. It is a challenge, but I enjoy it. The flax is not as good as it might have bee, there is still some boon remaining in the strick and it has been exposed to humidity in my house which I understand makes it stick together a bit due to the pectins. I have finished my first 700 yards of singles, not as smooth or even as I would like, but it is okay. I hope it can be woven.
It is a joy to be spinning it again. I am having a lot of fun!
